I have never actually baster-blasted my LR. Flow, crabs and snails seem to do the trick for me.

This sounds more like CA precipitation than a detritus problem.
Are you dosing CA at all? If so, how much?

Tank is up and running about 5 months. It is not sand from the sandbed.

My cycle is long over. If it's die off, it's not reflected in my water parameters, which are excellent (ammo, ite = 0; ate < 10).

The live rock has been in my tank for months.
